Lego isn’t just for kids! If you’re looking for something fun to do and love building things, a good Lego set can provide a ton of entertainment and reward you with a nice item you can place somewhere as a decoration. Or to play with, we won’t tell. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best Lego sets for adults below.
If you’re trying to find a good Lego set, though, you’ll probably quickly become overwhelmed with the options available. What will be a fun and worthwhile set? Given that Lego is expensive, you don’t want to spend money on a set that you end up not liking. Remember, these are very complex sets that will take time to build, so these aren’t for small children!
- The Disney Castle
- Nintendo Entertainment System
- Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet
- Star Wars Millenium Falcon
- Lego Art Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
- Lego Architecture Empire State Building
- Lego Creator Bonsai Tree Set
- Lego Creator Colosseum
The Disney Castle
Sad you haven’t been able to visit Disney World lately? Bring the magic into your home with The Disney Castle Lego Set! This Lego Store exclusive set replicates the front of the towering Disney World castle, and the back is a playset packed with all sorts of cute Disney references and details.
The Disney Castle set also comes with five Disney mini-figures that you can place around the castle. If you’re a Disney fan, this is definitely one of the best Lego sets for adults to build!
Nintendo Entertainment System
Want to relive the nostalgia of playing Super Mario Bros. on a CRT TV… in block form? You’ll want to pick up the Nintendo Entertainment System Lego set!
This has an NES and controller, small TV, and a crank on the side of the TV has Mario running through the familiar World 1-1 scenery. It’s honestly really neat to see in motion! You can even place the special Super Mario Lego on top of the TV. That’s cute!
Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet
If you’re looking for an adult Lego set that’s not too advanced but will still be a fun build, look no further than the Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet set. This helmet bust is under 700 pieces and has an MSRP of $59.99, so it’s not too hard on your wallet.
Despite it being smaller, though, the Stormtrooper Helmet still looks like a satisfying build, just not one that will probably take multiple days to complete. The finished result will be easy to display, too, with the stand making it a perfect bookshelf decoration.
Star Wars Millenium Falcon
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like the Lego Millennium Falcon is one of the most well-known Lego sets for adults around. The popular set is now back in stock, though, and you and build the famous Star Wars ship and display it in your home!
This is a kid-friendly set, too, so the whole family can help to build this! The Millenium Falcon even has opening panels, so you can place and play with the characters inside.
LEGO Art Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
The Lego Art sets are pretty interesting. Instead of building a structure, you’re filling in a square board with tiny Lego blocks, eventually making a neat piece of art. It’s almost like making pixel art in real life! Or like bead art, but without the need to iron and melt the pieces in the end.
The Marilyn Monroe set lets you recreate Andy Warhol’s iconic pop-art painting with Lego, and contains enough pieces to pick one of four colour palettes to do so! There are other editions featuring characters from Star Wars, Marvel and more through the links below, should you wish to go for a different option.
Lego Architecture Empire State Building
Big on architecture? You’ll love Lego’s Architecture series. These sets are miniature builds of real-world structures, and they’re highly detailed as well. The Empire State Building might be the most impressive of the currently available bunch. It may look simple, but this is a complex build that is not only sure to satisfy but will look great finished on a shelf.
Lego Creator Bonsai Tree Set
I’ve always wanted a bonsai tree. The thing is, I’m not all that great at gardening. I mean, sure, I can keep a cactus alive, but a bonsai tree is a whole other level of care. If you’re like me, you might prefer the Lego Creator Bonsai Tree set! This fun set allows you to build your own non-perishable bonsai tree.
The unique leaf bricks allow you to make a set that’s truly your own and you can interchange the green and cherry blossom bricks whenever you like!
Lego Creator Colosseum
If you’re looking for a huge Lego set that will keep you entertained for days, you’ll want the Lego Creator Colosseum set.
This is another Lego store exclusive and the sticker price might be a bit shocking, but for the avid builder, it’s worth it. This set has over 9k pieces in it, and this set has an incredible level of detail. It’s the ultimate Lego set for adults and any expert builder!
And that about covers what we think are the best Lego sets for adults. Obviously, there are a few variations on some of the picks we’ve made above but these choices should hopefully spark some ideas and help you make your purchase.
As we know they’re expensive, we’ll be keeping an eye on these in particular as this year’s Lego Black Friday deals become available in November. You can also follow Jelly Deals on Twitter for all the latest bargains on Lego, toys, games, tech and everything else.
